MORGAN DOLLAR

From the year 1878 until 1904, the U.S. Mint struck the popular and beautiful Morgan Silver Dollar. There were also some minted in 1921 as well.

Silver buyers today place the Morgan Silver Dollar as one of the most special of silver coins that the U.S. has ever produced, not only for their striking design but also their significance in history. George T. Morgan, the coins’ designer, gave the coin obverse a classical-looking Liberty head that was, in fact, the profile of Anna Willess Williams, an ordinary local American girl in Philadelphia.

If you were alive in the late 19th century, you would have recognized this silver dollar as the most common U.S. coin in circulation. This period was one of massive migration west as America spread its wings to the Pacific Ocean. A Morgan Silver Dollar was recognized value to everyone and welcomed everywhere from gambling tables to bank desks.

Morgan Silver Dollar coins can vary widely in year and condition, so we advise that you buy them from a recognized leader like Hartford Gold that can talk you through the options available.
